I routinely forget the fact that Homebrew has been available for Linux for years now.

If you need a minimap in your code editor, your file is too long. Change my mind.

Back in 2019, I made a small side project to learn React (CRA) and Redux. This weekend, I took the time to change a few things: migrate to Preact + Vite with no Redux.

Here are my findings.

Bundle size (min+gz)
- Before: 69 kB
- After removing Redux and migrating to Vite: 57 kB
- After migrating to preact/compat: 20 kB

I'm still in the process of going from preact/compat to proper Preact, but that should chip away another 2 kB according to the docs.

Another major finding:
Redux still rocks. My old code as a Redux beginner was so clean that I had a hard time converting it to an equally clean React-only code.

If you listen to Radioactive, you have to heave the loud sigh after the third line.

Sorry, I don’t make the rules.

I know most marketing is bullshit, but damn, Eno does actually start working in 6 seconds.

A good language prank is that the root parts of 'helicopter' are helico + pter

Your daily reminder that you don’t have to react to the bullshit of the mainstream.

Act! Set the narrative! Make your own tools – kind, caring, fair, and non-colonial ones – and let those exploitative fuckers be the ones who have to react to that.

(This is a lesson I admit I have to keep relearning but I think I’m getting better at it. Not having the asshole Twitter algorithm riling me up any chance it gets has also helped since I stopped visiting that cesspit.)

Even at two decades old, Songs About Jane continues to be my favourite Maroon 5 album.

Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!


Uh I just got DMed by the COO of Tumblr asking about hiring contractors to make us fully #indieweb compliant, and possibly even #fediverse integration. Anyone out there looking for work?

I spent half the morning debugging what seemed like inexplicable multiversal witchcraft, only to find that I had forgotten an `await`.

How is your day going?

Setting up a new house is tiring but also… fun?

Music is the closest thing we have to a time machine.

And I think my spaceship knows which way to go~ 🎶

Arctic Monkeys:
“Ever thought of calling when you’ve had a few?”

Also Arctic Monkeys in the same album:
“Why’d you only call me when you’re high?”

Make up your mind, Alex.

My friend Dhivya has started a new podcast about solo women travelers. In the first episode, she talks to her friend Vino about her solo trip to Rio de Janeiro.

Check it out if you’re interested.

“May the Fourth be with you” honestly sounds more like a line out of Naruto.
